Amazing Underwater Museum Museo Atlantico


Les premières sculptures de l’artiste britannique Jason deCaires Taylor ont été immergées à la fin de janvier, au large de l’île de Lanzarote, en Espagne. C’est le troisième musée de l’artiste, qui conçoit ses lieux d’art comme des récifs artificiels, refuges pour la faune et la flore. Le musée sous-marin ouvrira cet été et sera accessible aux plongeurs, aux sous-marins de poche et aux bateaux à fond de verre.
Museo Atlantico, premier musée en Europe au fond de l'océan


Museo Atlantico, the first underwater sculpture museum in Europe and the Atlantic, consists of 400 sculptures, all of which are the work of British artist Jason deCaires Taylor – known for creating similar installations in Mexico, the Bahamas, and most recently, the Thames. Like many of Taylor’s past works, the Museo Atlantico is intended to spark a conversation.
